– ABOUT –

In 2012, Restaurateur Scott Evans and Chef Phelix Gardner joined forces to open Finca restaurant in its original location on 11th East and 13th South in Salt Lake City (the current home of sister-restaurant Hub & Spoke Diner).  In 2014, Finca moved downtown to its current location in the historic Warehouse Condo building at 327 West and 2nd South. After several years of considering opening a separate bar in the front of the space, the continued liquor law changes in Utah finally pushed us to pull the trigger and Bar George is our lemonade.   

As a sommelier (Court of Master Sommeliers Level 1 and WSET Level 2), Scott’s passion for wine and beverages is evident in every one of his restaurants.  Throughout the Pago Restaurant Group, food and beverage menus are planned together, side by side, to complement each other and the personality of the restaurant.  P.S. with two awards for Pago’s wine list in Wine Enthusiasts Top 100 Wine Restaurants; awards for best wine list at Pago and Finca from Salt Lake Magazine and City Weekly; and top wine list by Wine Spectator.

And if you’ve talked to Scott about wine anytime in the past 10 years, you have likely heard him talk about natural wine.  Needless to say, making Bar George a natural wine bar was, well, a natural.  

Not only do they make amazing wines, natural wines are accessible and affordable.  Most natural wines are fresh, terroir-driven wines with little or no barrel aging, which keeps costs low for winemakers so even the most reputable wines hit great price-points.  Many of these wines are made in small production quantities and, unfortunately, get very few get reviews.  This means most big box restaurants and buyers will never feature them, but for the knowledgeable wine buyer, they are a treasure.  For us, sourcing artisan wines is akin to working with culinary artisans, like Julie Clifford of Clifford Farms in Provo for local fresh eggs or Beehive for locally crafted cheese.  

In truth, a list like ours would not have been possible even two years ago as the number of natural wines available in Utah has always been slim. Over the years, we have been developing relationships with brokers and importers to source hundreds of wines that have never been available in Utah until now. From California to Slovenian, we have assembled some of the world’s best natural wines and we look forward to sharing them with you.

Salud!
